Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters are an American rock band from Seattle, formed in 1994. The group was founded by Dave Grohl, a true rock ‘n’ roll icon of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, after the dissolution of Nirvana and the death of Kurt Cobain. They released their eponymous debut album a year later, which received very positive reviews from the media. After 24 years, Foo Fighters have headlined every major festival around the world. Four of their albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album.

Later on, the festival spread through USA and Madrid.
